FINNIHS POLICE MORAL AND ETHIC
BI-FIN - Police woman police serving at Vantaa district has been given a writ for assault and a battery; "A patrol was send to calm down a drunken police woman" commented the local yellow page newspapers Iltalehti (Source: Iltalehti, thu 07 Feb 2002, p. 3) the happening having taken place on last summer.
